Asus: We Put Computers IN Computers
Meditations on Asus Fanboyism:
josh: i'm stoked on netbooks
tina: Yeah, I am coveting.
josh: it validates something i've been saying for years
josh: that companies need to use the economies of scale and mores law to bring down the entry point instead of just upping the power of the $2000 bracket
tina: My philosophy is that most people buy more computer than they need.
josh: we can have $40 laptops
josh: there no reason why not
josh: i'm a total asus fanboy now
josh: i need an asus shirt
josh: somehting super nerdy
josh: with a picture of a pc in a pc in a keyboard in a pc monitor
tina: "Asus: pushing the limits of logical computer design."
tina: I think there's basically someone who works there that is good with legos.
josh: "Asus: pushing PAST the limits of logical computer design."
tina: Taking all of the components and building strange stuff.
josh: "Asus: yeah, half our shit makes no sense"
josh: but they epidomize the idea of fuction over form
tina: "Asus: who says you can't have two monitors on one keyboard?"
josh: they just do enough to make it look passablely good
josh: but that's it
josh: you arn't going to pickup college girls with this laptop
josh: But it only costs you $200, and you get your shit done.
